I'm a writer living in Corvallis, Oregon. I received my MFA in nonfiction writing from Oregon State University, and my BA in English from the University of Iowa. I served for seven years as an infantryman in the Iowa Army National Guard and deployed to Afghanistan in 2010. I currently work at a nonprofit in the mid-Willamette Valley.



A lot of Steven Moore's and Stephen Moore's exist in the world. To be clear, I am not:

  • that Republican economist you hear spouting nonsense on NPR

  • that guy who wrote the book about William Gaddis

  • that other guy who wrote The Novel: An Alternative History, 1600-1800

  • the author of The Samurai Code / The Hiram Kane Adventure series

  • the Assistant Production Coordinator on the Starz series Outlander
